  • TV style.

  • LOVE IT
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Dawn - June 29, 2021

    I reviewed this earlier as not good because we had trouble with shipping and I got it 2 days late. Now I have not only received it, but have it up and running. Love it. Picture is very good from any angle as you can see in pictures and set up was easy. It fit like a glove in my cabinet and looks great.

  • OLED the best at this time.
    Reviewed by Bernard - January 8, 2022

    One beautiful picture. Black levels are gorgeous! OLED is the best for my money. I am a Camera Shader for NBC and MLB and and we use OLED Broadcast Sony monitors for Camera matching. True to color, full black levels, and able to produce 14 f stops of a broadcast video camera and easy on the eyes during a 10-12 hr day. Just watched the new Matrix movie on Apple TV 4K HDR Dolby Vision. Oh my God!! I have a small TV room and the 48in was perfect and hard to find. This XBR replaced another Sony XBR HD 40in from 2005. It was still in perfect condition but was only 1080I and Apple TV wanted 1080p or else you watching 720p. It was time to upgrade!

  • Love this TV!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MrsDee - May 28, 2021

    The Sony Bravia is absolutely gorgeous! We had a 50” plasma screen that was slowly dying. The colors are beautiful! It sits on our corner cabinet and compliments our living room.

  • Sony's 48" Bravia 4K OLED can fit in small spaces
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Larry - August 22, 2021

    Because we have to fit our living room televisions in an enclave designed back in the days of projection TVs, we are limited in our choices. Our old Toshiba 46" LCD television began malfunctioning just before the Olympics. It was a swivel TV mounted on a central stand, but almost all flat screens today come with two little legs sticking out on on each side that makes them stationary. Fortunately Best Buy carries the Sony 48" Bravia OLED A9S series 4K television mounted on a low central stand. As shown in the photo, it fit perfectly in space available with plenty of space on top for ventilation. And by mounting it on a turntable, it can be easily rotated for viewing from the side and accessing equipment behind it.
